Kuda Mahachi’s First Pay Check Was $20!

SuperSport United forward Kudakwache Mahachi’s first wage as a professional was surprisingly low. He joined Matsatsantsa in 2019 after stints at Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Golden Arrows. He has also represented Zimbabwe at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. Speaking to SL Radio on the My Starter Pack podcast, the 26-year-old discusses his journey to the Premier Soccer League, as his footballing idols, and who he would pick for his ultimate 5-a-side team!

Since leaving Highlanders FC, Mahachi has enjoyed success in the PSL, having featured in over 100 fixtures and scoring 17 times. However, his first paycheque likely pales in comparison to his current contract. As discussed in the podcast, he earned only $20 in his first payment arrangement, before moving on to greener pastures.
